School has already started back up and I am already busy! I was a little unprepared a couple of days before school started. I found out that my school requires uniforms as part of the dress code. I was definitely not ready for that! But, thankfully, my Grandma had everything that I needed. The first few days were a little tough because I was still trying to get around the school and find all of my classes. After the first week, I was already back in the swing of things. It was a little tough during the first week, but now I feel like I have been there forever! I'm lucky because most of my friends are in my classes so that makes the school day more fun. Sometime's it's tough balancing school and racing on the weekends, especially with homework. I know that if I have homework due during the weekend, I have to get it done right away because the weekend will be busy at the track.
I look forward to the weekends and just love going out on the track. It's like a second home to me, even when I'm not racing. I like to go out and visit everyone and see how they are doing.
A lot of people will sit and watch a race and think that it is so simple just going around in a circle, but it is way more difficult than that! As a racer, you have to know when to break, when to slam the gas, when to shift and so much more. It is definitely more than just going around that track. If you've been around a track before, you know what I'm talking about.
I love the sport and I love spending time racing and hanging out with my friends and family. Even though I'm busy, especially now that school has started, I love racing and I don't think there is anything else I would like to do more in my spare time. It's in my blood!
